OG events are a chance to meet up with old school friends and make new acquaintances from the wider Glenalmond community. Many dinners and get-togethers take place every year. They're a great chance to find out what OGs have been up to since leaving Coll.

Dinner in Cambridge - the OGs gather at King's College for the fifth annual Oxbridge Alumni Dinner
Glenalmond Pupils vs OGGS, Sunday 27th May 2012
Fresh from a defeat against the Staff the previous day, OGGS Captain Andrew Primrose led his team to Cairnies for the annual match vs the College pupils. In the morning Foursomes and with Alasdair Purdie stepping in to play for the OGGS, the result was 3-2 to the pupils. Following a delicious barbecue, the singles matches were led out by Sandy Gray and Andreas Frey. Victory for Sandy meant that the scores were level with the remaining matches still out on the course. The final singles score of 6-3 in favour of the OGGS resulted in an overall match victory for the OGGS with a score of 8-6 - the winning putt was holed by Bobby Dickson for the second year in a row!
Following the match, the winning Captain, Andrew Primrose was presented by David Fraser with the Fraser Cup, a magnificent antique silver trophy which was kindly donated this year by OG brothers David and Martin Fraser to be played for in the annual match between the College and the OGGS. This will be on show in the College all year round and you are encouraged to go and have a look. We were joined by Maureen Marshall and the Warden for the presentation.
We were blessed with glorious weather and credit is due to the ground staff who did extremely well to tidy the course up after a miserable Spring.
Maureen Marshall met this group of OGs in The Fig & Olive, New York for drinks. Friendships were forged and renewed.
